Crowning Ourselves With Body Positivity

What if we could flip a switch in our own heads
decide to
Love Our Body
just as it is

What a perfect way to truly
Crown Ourselves!!

Instead of focusing on our personal 
perceived flaws
we woke up in the morning with wonderful
self love talk to ourselves
in which we marveled in
our very own magnificence.
That we were 
so very much more than 
good enough
just as we are.

As someone who has struggled a lifetime
of not feeling good enough
body wise
I have decided I am done with that thinking.

I have realized life is much to short
to focus on what I don't like
I am choosing to 
focus on all the parts 
I do love.

I am changing the beauty standard
I carry in my own mind.
I am changing it to revel in my own curves
instead of flinching in shame.

I choose today to decide 
I want to love, honor and respect
my own body.

That is one of the 
birthday gifts
I am giving myself this year.

I want to appreciate this body
that brought three wonderful humans into the world.

I want to appreciate this body
that is active and healthy.
That allows me to hike, kayak, and ride
in nature.
A body that moves with strength through Pilates and the gym.
A body that is sensual and strong.

I am choosing to drop any shame I carry 
of not having
'a self perceived perfect body'
instead choose
to marvel in the magnificence
in this body that has 
served me so well
these past 59 years.

When we
 love, honor and respect 
our own body

it is so much easier to
 invest in good health
from a place of 
instead of shame.

It is so much easier 
to dress a body
we choose to love
of telling ourselves
we will get the new clothes
when we loose the weight or fix whatever perceived flaw.
Focusing on what we don't like
 blocks out the light 
of our own magnificence.

Because in the end 
it's never really what we look like
it's all about how we feel about our 
own reflection.

So this year as I turn 60
I am giving myself
to be
 absolutely fabulous!

To Crown Myself!

To celebrate myself
just as I am.
someday when ...

Knowing I more years behind me
than in front
is absolutely
I am never going to be perfect
or younger than I am today.

I am choosing to celebrate myself
Just as I am.


As always my friends

I wish you love and joy
as you style your life
